Yield: about 43 dumplings and 2 cups dipping sauce
In China, pot stickers symbolize wealth, as their purse-like shape is believed to mimic gold ingots. (In some parts of China, coins are placed in the center of dumplings. Whoever bites into one with a coin is meant to have an exceptionally lucky year.) While stuffing options are many and varied, this version features one of the all-time favorites in Western culture: classic pork and scallion.

I agree that salting the cabbage made a huge difference. We found the filling very fresh-tasting and juicy. Although the filling was not salty, we found that the dipping sauce provided the salt needed.
These are so much better than store-bought. Definitely worth the time.
I used this recipe, but had some brussel sprouts on hand, so finely sliced then diced them and used them instead of cabbage. They're a close relative, so I figured...and the advantage was that I didn't have to salt them to get excess water out.
I made the filling the day before to break up the job.
The pot stickers were terrific. They froze really well too. Worth the effort and fun to make.
